Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

William's uber cool Grammi

(Grammi was the winner at the egg hunt! Not!
The kids were worn out and their baskets too heavy so
Grammi hung on to the baskets for them!)

William's Grammi truly is uber cool! Of course, I would think that, I am her daughter!

I talked to my Mom this evening and found out that she got William the most cool Easter gift. A little gumball/sugar lamb with a purple ribbon around his neck. Now, purple is the color I associate with William. It has been since the day he was brought into this world. You see everything we got from the hospital in regards to him was purple. So purple is his color.

The extra cool thing is, I was standing outside this morning wishing I could make it to the store that sells these cute little things. I just knew I didn't have time. So, I had decided that next year I would get two of these little collectible (edible if you're a kid) treats.

I don't have to wait until next year! My Mom, being the awesome Grammi she is got William his. She said, "I should have gotten it the other day, I just didn't know how you would feel." Funny thing is, my Mom always knows how I feel. She was afraid of pushing the envelope too far. Now she knows that's not possible! Not where her little grandson is concerned. She went and picked out what she had originally wanted to get and got it! I can't wait to see it. I'm so excited!

Thank you Mom! I love you more than the moon and the stars and the sun and so does William!

How lucky you are to have such a loving, supportive family.

CLC said...

That was nice of your Mom. It's so much easier to deal with when you have family to support you.

Becky said...

You have an amazing Grammi. Will you post a picture of this collectible for me, please? I'm itching to see it.


Purple is a gorgeous color and very fitting of your beautiful son, William.

I will post a picture as soon as I pick it up which will more than likely be this weekend. I'm itching to see it too! I know what it looks like, I've seen them before, my Mom used to get them for us girls when we were younger!

Antigone and CLC,
It is nice to have a supportive family. I do realize how lucky I am in that arena, I wish everyone had a family like mine!

Way to go Grammy! Can't wait to see them Amy. Isn't it great when someone just follows their heart, it usually knows the right thing to do.

How awesome! What an amazing Grammi. Family makes all the difference. And how funny that you picked purple...Purple is what we picked for Grace. I always thought that was her color, too.

Can't wait to see pictures!
